Hmm, they have something called the confidential file that promises
something "amazing" if you can guess a 4 digit password. Being the nosy
bastard I am, I poked around in the HTML source, and I can simplify things
for anyone who wants to try and guess:
http://www.newtype-net.com/password/password.cgi?password=0000&function=post

Increment the 0000 all the way up to 9999 and you should get the password.
I'm leaving for the weekend to go to Summersault in about an hour, otherwise
I'd just script something up to query all 11110 possibilities.

Buuutttt ... I just noticed if you go http://www.newtype-net.com/password/
you can list all the files in the directory ;p Evidently security was not
their first priority :P It looks like the "amazing" secret is
http://www.newtype-net.com/password/correct.html.

Sigh. All my work for that =)
